Here are some comments from the experts in the field of corporate governance on the book.

Alessio M. Pacces (Professor of Law and Finance, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Netherlands; Research Associate, European Corporate Governance Institute, Belgium): "Corporate Governance: New Challenges and Opportunities illustrates the still unsettled view that one size does not fit all in corporate governance. Challenges and opportunities differ across countries. This collection of essays documents this fact by focusing on a unique selection of countries, going well beyond the ‘usual suspects’ in comparative corporate governance. The authors of each chapter are specialists of the national corporate governance debate, as revealed by the level of detail in the analyses. Moreover, the approach is always interdisciplinary, as it includes theory, data, and legal information pertaining to the specific country. This book is highly recommended for students, scholars, and practitioners interested in comparative corporate governance".

Laurent Germain (Professor, Department of Economics, Finance and Law, Toulouse Business School, France): "This book provides on a newly way a useful overview of what is currently in practice in many countries in terms of corporate governance. It should then allow a quick and efficient comparison of these different practices for both practitioners and academic researchers.
I should add that after the numerous regulatory changes of the past decades, this book results in being necessary to briefly update those who deal on a daily basis with corporate governance issues. It also leaves some tracks for scholars to determine what is currently at stake in corporate governance in order to fit in their own research the major debates and questions of the field. Hopefully on a longer term, this may enhance cooperation between both worlds".

Áron Perényi (Lecturer in International Business, Swinburne Business School, Swinburne University of Technology, Hawthorn, Australia): "Corporate governance after the millennium has been challenged by two mega-trends: the progress of globalisation and the imperative of limited resources compared to the growth of economic activity. The former created a challenging environment in which the stakeholders involved in corporate governance have become more numerous and complex. The latter imposed an additional objective to the operations of the corporate bodies, namely sustainability and responsibility. This volume provides insight into the key features of and changes in corporate governance in developed and emerging economies. The volume heavily incorporates discussions on sustainability and responsibility as a key component of corporate governance, equally so in developed and emerging economies. The emerging complexity of corporate governance is captured by the authors by means of discussing internationalisation and stakeholder perspective. This discussion on stakeholders seems to be the intersection between the two key trends identified above and the scholarly endeavours of examining corporate governance. This volume provides an outstanding account of this stakeholder view and its role in corporate governance".
